Stop The World ... I Want To Get Off
People actually queued all through the night at stores in Birmingham and London, and both JD Sports and Footlocker had their websites crash through demand.

All for a pair of trainers designed by Kanye West.

People were even being offered double their money as they exited the stores, by people who didnt que.

WHAT THE HOLY FUCK!!!

Supply and demand market economies with excess capital and little imagination can lead to disastrous purchasing decision making in the footwear sector. Let’s hope they wear socks.

Consumerism, indoctrination via media marketing, Tv etc

Very effective nowadays as we drive forward with the full Americanisation of our culture.

All part of deregulation based neoliberal econmics since Reagan and Thatcher. They called it “trickle down” when it is exactly the polar opposite. Banks, large corporations and their owners running nations.

We all have to keep buying shit we don’t need with money we don’t have to keep it ticking along.

I think it's worse when people queue up to be the first to buy a new phone.

Don't get me wrong it's still tragic to queue up for trainers but at least most people are doing it because these are a collectible/investment and will be sold on for a profit in the future, whereas with a phone or other gadget it's literally just to be able to use it a few hours before other people.

As soon as your age exceeds your European shoe sizing you look like a right cunt in trainers unless you are actually exercising.

I don't think the "fools and their money" thing was coined yesterday
